Manchester United retained their title as football’s richest club when Deloitte, a consultancy, released its annual Football Money League rankings. Despite not being in the lucrative Champions League for the 2016-17 season, the Red Devils won the Europa League, a second-tier competition and, with the broadcasting might of the English Premier League behind them, held off the Champions League and Spanish league winners, Real Madrid. English teams dominate the list. The 2016-17 season was the first of a new three-year Premier League TV deal worth around £2.8bn ($3.9bn) per season. Such largesse may not last. Analysts warn that future football rights auctions may be less frenzied.
